A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will discuss the very best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years with proper home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Couple Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge generally requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for support, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, creating a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
